Whitby

Class 6 have thoroughly enjoyed our topic of Whitby this half term.

It has taken us on a gothic journey, where we have been following and tracking down Count Dracula!

We think that we may have even found his grave when we went to Whitby for the day.  It was so much fun- we wish that we could do it every week! 

Our English book, 'Room 13', has had us so gripped that we've not wanted to go home at the end of the day so we can finish reading! It has inspired lots of brilliant writing- from using figurative language to describe settings, to writing to Justin Bieber to correct his grammar! More recently we have been using language to build tension and get our readers' hearts racing. Please see below for a snippet of Alice's fantastic writing: 

 

 

I walked along the narrow passage, crossing my arms over my chest. I was in a haze of thoughts, so I couldn't feel the cold air biting may face. Thoughts of 'Where am I?' and 'What am I doing here?' crossed my mind. “Look at me, all alone here in the woods." I whispered, for I was sure I was alone. Still floating in my thoughts, I wandered along the empty path. A rustle to my left heaved me out of my pool of thought. I quickened my pace. My heart was racing in my chest, like an animal in a cage. Snarling. Growling.

Alice, Year 6. 

 

 

 

 

What we have been up to in class:

Task: Design a chair suitable for Henry VIII

 

Class 6 have been very busy lately! They have been using their maths skills (division, multiplication and measuring) to design a chair fit for a king! Then came the task of making them! 

Class 6 used glue guns, saws, sandpaper, hammer and nails and other tools to constuct fabulous pieces of furniture. 

Check out the pictures below to see our process and the end result. 

We are very proud of our amazing work!

As a part of our 'Gothic Literature' topic, we visited the home of Dracula himself! The day was very overcast and brooding, which was perfect for creating the Gothic atmosphere. Luckily the rain held off and we didn't get too wet!
